Jack Leaning spoke of a frustrating day for the batsmen, but he feels Yorkshire were largely got out by some good Hampshire bowling as the visitors claimed the early advantage at Emerald Headingley.

The White Rose elected to bat upon winning the toss, only to be bowled out for 181 during a weather-interrupted day.

Ex-West Indies quick Fidel Edwards starred with a season’s best 5-49, including four wickets in 12 balls after tea, as Yorkshire lost their last five wickets for only 11 runs.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore top-scored with 45 and David Willey hit 34 in tricky conditions; swing was definitely evident.

But, including Leaning, each of Yorkshire’s top seven made it into the teens, with nobody else reaching 20.

“It didn’t go as well as we’d have liked,” accepted Leaning, who saw Hampshire close on 14-1 in reply.

“Getting bowled out for under 200 is never ideal when you win the toss. We’d have liked another 100 at least.

“But getting a wicket tonight was a big boost, and hopefully tomorrow we can make some decent inroads with the new ball.

“You always feel in the game at Headingley because there’s always something in the pitch. Certainly with the way our bowlers bowl here, there’s every chance we can pick up some early wickets.

“It’s a frustrating day for the batters because the hardest thing at Headingley is getting in and getting going, which we did. But credit to them, there were some good balls in there.

“I feel like a lot of us were got out rather than giving our wickets away.

“Sometimes it happens like that. We’ve batted well for the last couple of games, but sometimes you miss out.

“Hopefully we can do what we did at Kent, go big in the second innings and get back into the game.”
